I decided to vent *before* I started this message.
My '88 fullsize Bronco is really p!ssing me off! The windshield washer sprayer has stopped working. Before, it used to work on and off. The weirdest thing is, it would stop working, I'd drive over some major bumps or grooves in the road, the truck would bounce all over hell and most of the time, the washer would magically work again. Then, more bumps (usually) and it'd stop. More bumps, work. Yet more bumps, not work. Strange!
Today I took the system apart, (when it was working), flushed the hose, cleaned the nozzle, checked the connections as best I could, and then, nothing. I tried the bump test and still nothing.
WHAT could be wrong? Any advice is most appreciated. I tried to take off the reservoir cap to check for crap in there, but it's a sealed unit. Doh, Ford! Could it be the pump in reservoir? A bad connection? The switch inside the cabin? I don't know what to do and I need the damn thing for the winter! The truck is basically undriveable until I get this thing fixed as after a few minutes on the road I can no longer see through the windshield.
Anyone have this problem before? Again, any advice is appreciated. I don't want to take it to Ford and have them give me the big Q at $75/hour.
